CrimeCraft going Free to Play

#1 Posted by _k1_ (197 posts) -
Massively is reporting that CrimeCraft will be switching to a free to play model (they call it an 'unlimited trial') with optional premium subscriptions.   The subscriptions will be either $4.99 or $9.99 a month, and offer faster XP gain, better customization, and more skill options.  Existing players will receive a special title, an extra month of the $9.99 subscription, and to-be-announced bonus content.  
  
I'm sure this is a huge shock that no one saw coming.  /sarcasm.

If I wanted to feel angry, frustrated and distraught there are better ways of doing so rather than this.

Free is $20 too much.

Why bother?  BattleForge is F2P...and it absolutely DOESN'T SUCK!

All that this means is that the game and sadly probably the dev too will fail within the year

Not Like This Crimecraft edition confirmed. 
I was worried they wouldn't be around for it on account of the pay model.

" So what about those people who paid the 40 dollars for the software? Well, you'll be getting an "Original Gangster" tag"
 
That made me laugh.

Probably not.  They didn't do anything like that with BattleForge when it went F2P.
